Physical Education

At Castle Newnham School pupils develop skills that enable them to live healthy, active lifestyles. In primary, pupils will achieve and succeed in their journey to become physically literate through a planned and progressive PE curriculum.

Our curriculum offers a holistic approach in providing a diverse amount of opportunities for pupils to engage in a range of physical activities. By developing the affective, cognitive, physical and social domains through PE, pupils are confident, motivated and educated learners throughout their journey from primary to secondary and beyond at Castle Newnham School. In order to achieve this, we provide our students with access to participate in competitions and events, extra-curricular and intra-curricular clubs, lunch time clubs, gifted and talented clubs, swimming lessons, bike ability and much more.

All pupils are included and SEND and Pupil Premium pupils always receive as much opportunity to participate as everyone else. Please click here to find a copy of our latest report on the ‘Use of PE and Sports Premium Funding’. Pupils in Year 5 and 6 benefit from specialised PE and Dance teachers from the secondary site for lessons and compete in fixtures and leagues against other schools.

We currently hold platinum for our School Games Mark which demonstrates our excellent use of the School Sports Premium and our engagement in competitive sport. Please see below the achievements of primary pupils at Castle Newnham School:

  • County Gymnasts Finals in Years 3 & 4
